I looked at the response to the question on what is the carbon footprint of a horse. It goes on to saw how it’s less than cattle and why. And then it ends by saying it’s less than an automobile. The response doesn’t say what the carbon footprint of a car is. It doesn’t saw the carbon footprint of a horse. It doesn’t compare the footprint between a car and cattle even. Is there an actual measurement for a horse, car, and cow?

I have a horse that will lay down and roll approximately 5 to 10 minutes after he has started to eat. After he rolls back and forth he will lay their for a few minutes ,gets up and finishes eating. Sometimes he passes gas. He does this after each feeding. He eats a grass-alfalfa mix. Without xrays do u have any suggestions. could enteroliths cause this? Thank you.

In race horses a stallion is sometimes put in a stall next to the mare to 'get her in the mood' for breeding. the mare is then taken to the stallion that is to do the work.
What is the name of the 'preparation stallion'?
My niece is showing her horse. He is 18 years old & has always been ridden in a bosal, but since the Iowa 4-h guidelines don't allow bosals to be used in shows at his age, we now must either get him to use a bit or not show him in the performance classes. Is it really worth taking him out of the bosal, which he listens to & respects? I feel that forcing horses to use a bit when they respond better without them, is unfair to the horse & the 4-h exhibitor. Especially if forcing a bit makes the horse unsafe or less comfortable. We will try to find a bit that will work for him, but is there anything that can be done now or in the future to change this rule? Thank you
